A Testimonial from Trinity Melrose

Fr John, You should know that the time and effort put forth in your seminars is proving immensely valuable to us. Your staff demonstrated expert competence was genuinely interested in the subject. The material covered was relevant to the goals we had, and was inspirational to many of us that had previously been ‘banging our heads’ trying to find a better way to promote real youth interest in our churches. I was happy to report to our congregation today how much last weekend affected our youth; I overheard comments of being “thankful for the increased joint efforts between our small churches” (Trinity and St Mark’s), I witnessed an outspoken young lady direct her focus to others, and one of our youth has already completed his application for April’s Happening! Our adult volunteers seemed deeper in their commitments to youth ministry… What more could we have asked of your program! Many thanks. I’m looking forward to the next chapter!...

After Damascus at Holy Trinity

YP Ministries has been partnering in ministry for almost a year with Holy Trinity Episcopal Church in Gainesville, FL. The youth ministry went through a transition there not long ago. They have hired Kristen Bryant as the Children and Youth Ministries Coordinator. There is a small but dedicated group of Sr. High people who have truly bonded and now have been lifted up and trained as leaders. The youth have talked a lot about why people put down other people instead of lifting them up. So… the youth have created a vision which is:¬†Lift and Let Lift! The are working on a couple of “big ideas,” mission projects and ongoing ministry. They are on fire. The YP Ministry team has led them through the visioning and development process, helped them raise up and train adult leaders and they have one more module for their Sr. High people to complete the After Damascus training.
